Warren Beatty is Lyle Rogers, a dimwitted songwriter who befriends and partners with Chuck Clarke (Dustin Hoffman), who is only slightly more intelligent but every bit as untalented. Together the duo dreams of becoming a big-time lounge act, but their songs, with titles like "That a Lawnmower Can Do All That," are unintentionally hilarious. Chuck becomes suicidal, but just when it seems they'll never strike it rich, the boys are offered a shady gig at a North African hotel, entertaining U.S. troops stationed in the tiny nation of Ishtar. On their way to accept the job, Lyle, Chuck, and their blind camel are sidetracked by a mysterious woman (Isabelle Adjani) and a scheming CIA agent (Charles Grodin), who are involved in a rebellion against the country's emir.
Starring: Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman, Isabelle Adjani, Charles Grodin
Viewer Quote: "Ishtar is a comedy of the first measure. It is not the most under-rated film ever, but it may be close."
